In the other half of the double
main event, Al "Pinky" Cowan
of Spokane and Mickey Gimmell
of Redding, Calif., displayed the
type of action that wins extra-
award purses. And that is exact
ly what happened.
Feel Out Opponents
After a slow start, in which
each fighter felt his opponent
out, the eight-round event began
to pick up speed, until the final
round, when both battlers put on
a torrid demonstration of ring
Cowan appeared to hold the
weight edge, although the score
book showed Gimmell to weigh
two and one-quarter pounds over
and above Pinky. However,
GimmeH's shifty ring technique
more than evened the score.
Both fighters punched hard
and at one point Cowan appear
ed dazed after Gimmell landed a
solid blow. Cowan, a hard-hitting
slugger himself, who takes a
back seat to no one when it
comes to landing punches, ap
peared to be 'way off last night.
When the dust cleared, the
judges decided the match was
even-Stephen. The fans' applause
indicated the decision was popu
lar. Two four-round preliminaries
provided the only KOs on the
card. In the curtain raiser,
Spider Renaud showed consider
able aggressiveness in a match
with Lyle Wescott of Roseburg.
Renaud also had the reach.
The Spider dropped Roseburg's
Guardsman in the third round
for a six-count after rocking him
on the ropes. Another left and
right sent Wescott to the canvas,
and Referee Red Green counted
him out just as the bell ended
the third round.
In the other preliminary ac
tion, Dick Collie, the Winchester
powerhouse, slugged his way to a
KO over his opponent, Jack
Smith, of Spokane. Smith dis
played an easy, loose form, but

It took the youthful Brooks a
time to get rolling but they
sizzled through the west on their

at Ebbets Field last night, they
moved up even with the Braves

their hands with Sain before
notching their eighth win In the
last 10 games. It was 00 until
the seventh when Gene Herman

a rally. A sacrifice and Carl
Furillo's single scored Herman-

Dickson, who beat the Cards

sixth straight setback and sev

Johnny Schmitz made It a
clean sweep for the southpaws
in tne National by pitching tne
Chicago Cubs to a 3-1 edge over
Cincinnati. Emil Verban was the
big wheel for the Bruins with
a double and two singles.
Eddie Kopat, top pitcher In the
American, continued to reverse
his normal spring form with a
fifth straight victory. Usually
Ed doesn't start to win until
hot weather time. The Yankee
southpaw blanked the second
place Philadelphia A's with six

Cleveland started its season
again with a mock "reopening
day" and got off on the right
side of the ledger with a 4-0
whitewash of the Chicago White
Sox. Everybody went through the
motions of re-starting the season
because of the Tribe's sorry
showing, losing 10 of their last
